Ramon Azeez: Hard work and dedication helped me to return to the Super Eagles

By Ilekhuoba Taiye - Super Eagles and Granada midfielder Ramon Azeez has revealed the reason behind his recall to the Super Eagles of Nigeria, he attributed this to his hard work and dedication to the game of football.

The midfielder has been overlooked for national team matches ever since his world debut against Iran in 2014 FIFA World Cup held in Brazil. However, his remarkable exploits for Granada in the La liga earned him a recall to the Super Eagles against Benin Republic and Lesotho in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers.

The 27 year old also uncovered his frustration and disappointment but hard work proved fruitful for him.

"Hard work and dedication to my game helped me to return to the Super Eagles. Those five years really taught me a lot and I knew I needed to work very hard to deserve a recall."

"It was frustrating and painful you know. I really felt the pain but I was determined. I was delighted when I got a fresh call from the coach and I knew it was due to the work I had put in," Azeez revealed.
